Return and Refund Policy

Return Policy

To protect the provenance of delivered wines, exchange and returns are not allowed.

Corked Wines

While we make every attempt to provide wines of good quality and provenance, we cannot guarantee the personal 'drinkability' for every bottle we sell. It is the industry standard that older wines are purchased "as is" and at the buyer's risk as to the drinkability of the wine. This policy includes "corked" wines (those tainted with TCA and smell of wet cardboard). This wine fault occurred during the cork selection process and is completely out of our control. For the aforementioned reasons, no refund or exchange will be granted.

Sancerre is a small wine district in central France, famous for its crisp, aromatic white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc. It is also known for its high-quality goat cheeses, which are an excellent match for the local wine.

This plot has limestone soil from 1986 planting with East exposure. Grapes are harvested then put under gentle pneumatic pressing before cold settling using indigenous yeasts. Aged for 6 months in stainless steel vats. 

Established in 1945 by Marcel Gitton with barely 1 acre, the Gitton Père & Fils Estates today cover close on 60 acres (27 ha) situated amongst the best areas of the region. The vineyards are located on various distinctive soils (flint, different types of chalk) of the villages of Sancerre.

The Gitton Family has become notorious over the years for its respect of traditions, the main philosophy of the house. Since each vineyard has its own specificity, every effort is made to vinify the individual grape harvests separately so as to preserve the subtle qualities resulting from the various soils. Each vineyard is vinified without the use of artificial yeast or enzymes. Family's ambition is to produce distinctive wines, each having its own character, respecting the fruit of the vines, the particularities of the soils, and thus to provide wine-lovers with a range of wines calculated to satisfy the most discriminating palates.
